I’ll admit right here that conflict distresses me. Some people seem to genuinely enjoy fighting and the intricate, internal point-scoring that follows. Relating to our fellow humans can be perplexing, but I think all we can do is try to understand while taking responsibility for our own actions. Sorry – that’s all I tell you about this one!
Do you feel better - now that you’ve hurt me?
Is the pain in my heart
Do you feel better, now that you’ve hurt me
Now there’s been a fuss and a fight
And you’ve slammed the door?
You put a stone
Right where you’re heart is
And you wrote on that stone
‘I know I’m right’
Well, it takes two to make a heart-break
Just like it takes two to make it right
And it’s all about an eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth
I’m doing my best to try and understand you
Believe me, that’s the truth
But go ahead and do it, if you’ve got to do it
Hold on to your blues with all your might
‘Cause I’m just living my life
And I’m trying to get it right...
Do you feel better – now that you’ve hurt me?
This is a mean old world to understand
And I believe you’ve been storing up your heartaches, baby
Instead of reaching out your hand
Instead to reaching out your hand...
